Ancient Forest

The album, Ancient Forest, took a year too record. Within these recordings you will hear the soundscape of an increasingly rare eco-system, the old growth virgin forest.

Recorded on location in Abraham Lake, an old growth Red Spruce and Hemlock woodland in Nova Scotia, “Ancient Forest” will take you deep into this living cathedral, for a listening experience that will captivate and relax you.

I was compelled to produce this work because of the rarity of these ecosystems, many of the sounds you hear are the same sounds that echoed through these trees thousands of years ago. Having never been touched by humans, the soundscape is perhaps as close to true wilderness as you can experience. The track Boreal Forest Sunrise was recorded nearby in an ancient wetland.
